Share Article

ETI (Evolutionary Technologies International, Inc.), a global provider of data integration solutions, helped WorkflowOne, one of the nation's largest providers of print and promotional products, see a detailed picture of their data assets using ETI Data Profiler(TM). As a result of acquisitions, WorkflowOne has numerous legacy systems that contain vast amounts of historical information regarding customers, products and pricing. To support data migration to their new back office application, WorkflowOne used ETI Data Profiler to help them evaluate the information stored in a variety of databases including Oracle, MS SQL Server, Sybase, INGRES and flat-file data sources. ETI Data Profiler automatically discovered data values, formats, frequencies, patterns, ranges, keys and all of the associated metadata, saving WorkflowOne time and money.



ETI Data Profiler quickly consumed hundreds of thousands of records from these separate data sources and automatically analyzed each element for things such as uniqueness, minimum and maximum values, field length, data type and format

    "ETI Data Profiler quickly consumed hundreds of thousands of records from these separate data sources and automatically analyzed each element for things such as uniqueness, minimum and maximum values, field length, data type and format," said Jeff Rooks, Senior Technical Systems Engineer at WorkflowOne. "By joining these separate data sources within ETI Data Profiler and quickly detecting the data anomalies, we were able to provide our development and business teams with detailed requirements to support their data migration efforts."

ETI Data Profiler automates data analysis and discovery saving customers up to 70 percent of the total cost of data analysis and rework and dramatically reduces project schedules, overall costs and unforeseen project delays. Manually evaluating large volumes of data from legacy systems is normally a time consuming process but using ETI Data Profiler, WorkflowOne evaluated these large data sets in just a matter of days. The data was presented in an easy-to-understand format which helped WorkflowOne identify issues that might otherwise have been overlooked in the development phases of their project. From the very start of an IT project, ETI Data Profiler ( discovers the content, structure and quality of data sources which raises corporate confidence in data assets.

"WorkflowOne is one of the many customers who have realized the power of the intelligent, data analysis automation built into ETI Data Profiler," said ETI president and CEO, Ron Baker. "ETI provides a third generation data profiling tool that truly automates complex data analysis saving months of manual work."
